Kyle Busch continued his strong start to the 2013 Chase to the Sprint Cup by bringing home a solid fifth-place finish Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AAA 400 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway.

Kyle, the driver of the No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), led once for 30 laps and brought home his third consecutive top-five finish to start the Chase.

“We were about a fifth- to seventh-place car much of the day, and we ended up fifth,” said Kyle, who recorded his 14th top-five finish of 2013. “We got everything we could get out of our Interstate Batteries Camry today. When you look at the grand scheme of things and it’s three straight top-five finishes to start the Chase, it’s not too bad.”

Kyle’s teammates – Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry and Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 Toyota Camry – finished seventh and 20th, respectively.

Jimmie Johnson won the AAA 400 to score his 65th career Sprint Cup victory, his fifth of the season and his eighth at Dover, making him the track’s all-time race win leader.

Matt continues to lead the Chase standings.

VvwsZ7mE6XJj7UVp.pngMike Edwards and his Interstate Batteries/I Am Second/K&N/Penhall Chevy team rebounded nicely at the third race of the NHRA Playoff when they scored a runner-up finish. More important, they regained the NHRA Pro Stock points lead.

After qualifying in the No. 7 position, Mike defeated then points leader Jason Line in the opening round. He advanced to the finals where he lost to Erica Enders-Stevens.

“It was a good day overall,” Mike said. “We gained some valuable championship points. I’m so proud of our team, and the guys fought hard for every point. The Pro Stock championship is going to come down to the last race, and we just need to return to our pre-Countdown form and we will be just fine.”
